What the heart wants...

I have been spending a lot of time away travelling recently, I have been on two work trips in the past two months to Prague and to Kenya and I have also been on a few breaks in the UK this year. I think that travelling is a real privilege in life and the more you travel, the more you want to travel. There is such a huge world out there to explore and I love to experience different cultures and visit countries I have not been to before. I have always loved to travel and I am fortunate that I have visited many countries and I have lots more on the list of places I am eager to go to, so the title of this post 'what the heart wants' refers to my passion for travel...exploring new places is definitely what my heart wants. 
Anyway after that rambling intro to this post, here is what I wore for a evening back home recently. I love the effortless combination of pairing a black maxi dress with a contrasting blazer. I got this blazer last year in both pink and white and it has been such a handy wardrobe staple. 

I love a classic chain handle handbag, this one is from Zara and I use it so much. I like rose gold accessories too and I think they add a touch of style to a simple outfit. This choker was a piece I bought a while ago and I have worn it often. I think the key to dressing for my shape is to keep it simple, I find that patterns and too many details do not suit me so I like to keep my outfits fairly minimal. 

I like the way black and white looks so fresh together. This outfit was ideal for a relaxed evening stroll and we just went to get some ice cream after our walk. Sometimes the simple pleasures in life are the best. 

A black maxi dress is always a key piece in my wardrobe for summer. Because I am tall, I find maxi dresses are suited to my figure and I have worn black maxi dresses for so many years. I definitely stick to a style formula!
